Disneyland with Daddy

Last week we finally made it to Disneyland with Daddy.
It's been so busy and usually Miles and I go with our friends while Romney is at work.
Miles always asks if Daddy can come too and finally Daddy said YES he was coming.
He was so happy.

It was thee perfect day.
We drove right in and got parking.
We walked right on the tram.
Where was everyone?
I don't know, but it was such a great day to be there.

We saw Donald Duck dressed up cozy warm for winter.

We went on the all time favorite ride at the moment:
Small World.

Miles literally screamed "LOOK" the whole 15 minute ride.
It makes the all the chaos of getting there worth it.

We went and checked out the winter wonderland
where Miles played some "reindeer games"

We found Peter Pan.
(Probably the best peter pan ever. 
He totally worked with Miles shy personality and talked all about TickToc Croc which made Miles SUPER happy)

We went over to California Adventures to walk through Cars Land and there was no line for the 
tire ride. Miles was tall enough and we had a blast on that live size hoovering air hockey ride.

While we were eatting ice cream we saw Mickey Mouse and needed to go say Hello.

We also saw Santa where Miles said he wanted a present.
Just a present.
(that'll be easy)
We had such a great day.
It really is the Happiest Place on Earth.

Christmas Tree on Black Friday

Thanksgiving morning was filled with football and putting up the tree before we left for dinner. 
I wanted this part done so it would be ready for decorating on Black Friday. 

Miles was pretty excited to see the tree come to life. 
He wanted to be in the action and help with anything and everything.

Miles is really into helping with EVERYTHING right now.
Or....he demands "I can do it myself!"
But any excuse to be on a ladder with daddy...he'll take it!

The next day (black friday) Miles and I started to haul out Thanksgiving decorations and brought in Christmas.
He loved putting up the ornaments!

He even said to himself
"I'm really good at this" as he was hanging them up!
It was crackin me up.

As we were decorating our tree, we got a phone call from daddy saying that he was stationed for the day at a big Downtown Lighting Ceremony where he works and wanted us to come out for it.

So Miles and I quickly cleaned up and drove out to see our dad.

It only took us 40 minutes to get off the freeway exit and 45 minutes to find parking.
So we missed the firework show....
Thats okay though, Romney had to be on roof and we wouldn't have been able to see him anyway.
 After the fireworks the city turns on the millions of Christmas lights and the night begins.
It was crazy, there were so many people.
Miles and I made our way looking at the lights and found our dad!

It really was a unexpected fun night.

 Miles asked so many questions, pointed at so many things, and begged for dinner.

So we said bye to daddy, bought a cheesy light up toy (that broke in the car), and grabbed some dinner.

That was a fun Black Friday....and I didn't even go out shopping!
